Assessment at Cheetwood Primary School

When the revised curriculum was introduced into schools in September 2014 the way that pupils’ learning is assessed was also changed. The Government no longer requires schools to use a single system for ongoing assessment so it is the responsibility of the individual school to implement its own assessment method as long as it:

  • Gives reliable information to parents about how their child and their child’s school is performing
  • Helps to drive improvements for pupils and teachers
  • Makes sure that the school is keeping up with external best practice and innovation

Assessment is the process by which we know how well pupils are doing. It is also used to help ensure that the pupils who need targeted intervention are quickly identified, appropriately supported and monitored so that they can fully achieve their potential.
